We are at the blue dot!
At the KOA Kampground in Mackinaw City.
Among the Birch trees….
And other trees.
And the ferns.
Just a skip and a jump to the Straits of Mackinac and the Mackinac Bridge. (This is my favorite picture in this group).
There are dipping opportunities, but also…
Lots of signs like this. But we have learned where it’s ok for furry people to swim.
There is lots of green grass to roll in.
Sometimes it’s nice to just look.
No shortage of shopping. Mandy, this one’s for you! ❤️
There are trees to keep us shaded from the sun….
There are rain storms…whew, lots of those.
And the rain storms bring out the ghost ships.
There are lighthouses. This is Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse. It’s part of….
Michilimackinac State Park. And don’t forget the abundance of seagulls!
And the fishflies. Aka June bugs I think. I always thought they were kinda cute. Now the mosquitoes….not so much!! My new perfumes are called ‘Deep Woods’ and ‘Off’. They stink! But I can’t survive here without them!
But with all this water…lakes, rivers and rain, and literally this rainforest…yup, there’s going to be bugs.
May we in the USA celebrate our freedom and independence with an understanding of how precious it is and how easily we can lose it. May we demonstrate in our own lives the qualities we would like to see in our nation….peace, compassion, and justice…please add to the list as you see fit.
